    No, it depends on the origin of the whisk(e)y. For instance, Scotch and Japanese Whisky will never use the "e" but American and Irish Whiskey will always use the "e." The plural form of the word also follows the nationality rule: whiskeys for whiskey and whiskies for whisky. It always depends on the nationality.

    Not on the bottle, but the 4 pack. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oaks

    haha, oh no! The 'celerating' edition was solely the first batch released. I'm familiar with the production of these labels, and this typo was fixed for the 2nd batch that made it to the bottling line.

    Correct. It is extremely annoying when EN_US dictionaries insist that "whisky" is incorrect.

    Not spelling per se, but Bush Ambrée (or Scaldis in some places, I believe) is labelled "Premium Belgium Beer", which is pretty awkward English.

    Three Floyds has typos/misspellings on their labels all the time. Of all of their misgivings, this might be the one that bothers me least.

    This is the very error that I mentioned in my OP.

    When I first saw this one, I assumed it was so noticeable that it was done on purpose. Like a word they were trying to coin.

    Spelling is really interesting when toasted. Damn, that doesn't look right, etc. And to you other post I wanted to say, "they're, their, now just calm down".

    Hell, I'm with you. Now I see, like a hawkeyed editor, my beloved "Jersery". Jersery sounds like some type of vice. Jersery: usury with lower interest rates, but with implication.

    Thanks. Jeez- it's even in his comment. I would make such a lousy copy editor.

    Yeah, it took me awhile after I read about it and then grabbed the bottle I had in the beer fridge.

    I always think of this in such a case:

    That was on purpose. You cannot trademark a geographic place name, so they spelled it without the first C figuring no one would notice or care anyway.

    I don't know what two 'other' errors that you have in mind, but, as a grammar purist, I'd say that there are three more besides the 'oaks' error.

    I'll add 'fresh roasted' although that one could go without a hyphen.

    well... you got to have the casuals so not to crowd the good stuff the industry offers. you know surprisingly the beer community is very, very akin to the video game community in this respect. Bud Light and Corona... Call of Duty and Madden... same sort of thing

    And technically, an "and" before "sumatra."
